New Netflix Series: ‘The Get Down’ by Baz Luhrmann

Spotted this over at Okayplayer: apparently Baz Luhrmann is bringing to Netflix a mini-series about the birth of hip hop in the Bronx (as well as punk and disco elsewhere in NYC) in the late 1970s. Check out the clip below, as well as this short synopsis from The Hollywood Reporter. Looks dope!

The Get Down will focus on 1970s New York — broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped — dying. … Consigned to rubble, a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are nothings and nobodies with no one to shelter them — except each other, armed only with verbal games, improvised dance steps, some magic markers and spray cans. From Bronx tenements, to the SoHo art scene; from CBGBs to Studio 54 and even the glass towers of the just-built World Trade Center, The Get Down is a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco — told through the lives and music of the South Bronx kids who changed the city, and the world … forever.
